4th Class Helicopters – STEAM

February 12th, 2018

4th Class conducted an experiment last Friday as part of the STEAM program. They created paper helicopters using a template and they had to perform a number of different tasks. They had to predict before they carried out the tasks. We discovered a lot of interesting things. Pupils were fascinated that even with half a wing the helicopter still rotated. 

4th Class Italy Projects

February 12th, 2018

Pupils in 4th class spent the last number of weeks learning about Italy. They then created some fabulous projects at home and brought them in to show the rest of the classes in the school. They learned some very interesting facts about the country. Did you know that the Vatican City in Rome is the smallest country in the World.
